Africa CDC – Mastercard Foundation: Saving Lives and Livelihoods Newsletter, March 2022
In June 2021, the Mastercard Foundation partnered with the Africa CDC to launch a $1.5 billion initiative called Saving Lives and Livelihoods. Together, we are purchasing vaccines for more than 65 million people, deploying vaccines to millions more across the continent, enabling vaccine manufacturing in Africa by developing the workforce, and strengthening the Africa CDC’s capacity.
Africa CDC and the Mastercard Foundation salute the work of so many women around the continent who are at the forefront of strengthening public health. We celebrate their contributions in this edition as we mark International Women’s Month.
